Ok so I'm looking at buying an Antares breastplate but I can only find one site that has the one I'm looking for. I was hoping someone on here may know of other places I can find it. Heres a link to the one Im looking for, not the common elastic one.....
But it is so beautiful and buttery soft! It's only been used once and has been oiled. I don't think I could part with it...even though it appears my horse won't be needing one anytime soon. I found mine on ebay.
I just bought this one in March of this year - Greenhawk had to order it direct from Antares, I waited a couple of weeks for it.
(mine is probably for sale end of October when we lease a new horse.,,, just saying!)
My friend got hers from an Antares dealer a month or so ago. They have plenty. They usually come with a running attachment. Fear not! They are still out there. However they are pricey, perhaps that is why you are having difficulty finding them.
You will probably want a 2 or even a 1; definitely not a 3. I have four of their breastplates, including the one the OP is looking for and they're all designed for broad shouldered horses. My eq horse is 17.3 and 1800 lbs and broad as the day is long and the 3 is still a tad big for him; I have it on the smallest settings! But they are all gorgeous and have held up beautifully through very hard use!
Nine out of ten times, you'll get it wrong...but it's that tenth time that you get it right that makes all the difference.
